Loved our stay!

This B & B is the best! Christine and John will go out of their way to make your stay everything you want! The location is ideal (steps from everything in town), the rooms are spacious and lovely, and the breakfast is fabulous - made from fresh and local ingredients. Can't say enough positive things about this gem!


Great Inn, Greater Innkeepers

4.2 on June 23, 2015

My wife and I stayed here for one night in June. The keepers of the Inn are fantastic people, and the rooms and Inn are clean and spacious. Decor is classic victorian but somehow the rooms felt modern. We stayed in the Royalty Room, which was great. The room is spacious, has a fireplace, a door to a semi-private balcony, and even has this nice breezeway between the room and the bathroom to throw your keys, and give the bathroom more privacy. It really felt like a two room suite. Location is top notch. In the middle of everything, but set back so it's quiet. Like I said, the innkeepers are great. I killed our rental car battery overnight, and John (the innkeeper) drove me to the hardware store to buy cables, and jumped our car right in the parking lot. You can't go wrong staying here. The food from the complimentary breakfast was good, the special bacon was fantastic.

Most pleasant setting and innkeepers!


Just Short of Excellence

3.6 on October 24, 2014

The Ivy Manor Inn is a beautiful property with a great location, an ivy-covered stone Tudor building right in the heart of Bar Harbor. Our room (Moulin Rouge) was spacious and comfortable, and the owners were very accommodating. However, the whole place seems short on lighting. The larger breakfast room was almost gloomy, even on a sunny morning. The lack of bathroom glasses and tissues in the room is baffling. Little things like that, standard in every inn, hotel or motel I've ever stayed in, make a big difference when the inn is not inexpensive.


Lovely Inn, Amazing Breakfasts

3.8 on September 26, 2014

Amazing location and good value. Rooms on first floor can be a little loud, but this is only because of the great location - right on the village green. If you are a light sleeper, get an upstairs room. This wasn't a problem for me. Owners are very nice and can provide good advice on local area. Breakfasts are super delicious, and try the restaurant for dinner. You won't be disappointed.


Ivy Manor Inn and Michelle's is lovely

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful inn for 8 nights. The room was comfy and had a balcony which we could also enjoy. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and amazing to look at. The presentation was wonderful. We had dinner at Michelle's one night and enjoyed a wonderful evening. Service was very attentive and the meals were perfect. We were able to sit outside at the fire pit for a nightcap while enjoying the beautiful evening. The location of the inn was ideal for us as we like to walk and it was in walking distance to just about everything. We truly enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful vacation. John and Christine are lovely hosts!


A great place to stay!

The rooms were simple but certainly met my expectations. What the rooms lacked in wow, the hosts provided in hospitality. The breakfasts were delicious and the atmosphere warm and inviting. An excellent value for the heart of Bar Harbor, Maine.


Nice BnB in Bar Harbor

4.4 on September 12, 2014

New inn owners are experienced and friendly, they have a cute BnB thats needs some updating and are committed to improve the property. Our room was nice, bed was super comply, bathroom was a bit outdated but worked fine. TV was tiny but we didn't come to watch TV. BnB is located in the heart of town just walk out the door and you're there. Breakfast was awesome! Fresh Juice, really good coffee, blueberry scones w/ lemon curd, candied bacon...lots of nice touches ! I thought the Value was great, considering we stayed in high season, relative to all the other options in town and it comes with breakfast and pleasant, professional staff - we were very pleased!

A little too rustic for me. Located on main street of town, with lots of street noise


Felt Like Home

4.4 on August 29, 2014

I had done several nights of research online, checking out all the bed and breakfasts in Bar Harbor. Something about Ivy Manor caught my eye. I booked a two night stay in August 2014. When we arrived I was pleasantly surprised that it had ample parking, the building had so much character, and was so centrally located. You couldn't ask for anything better. The experience at Ivy Manor was nothing short of awesome. Wonderful owners, staff, breakfast, dinner, cozy rooms, close to Acadia NP...the list could go on forever! If I were to leave a tip, it would be to BOOK EARLY! Room selection can be limited or non existent if you wait too late. Happy travels!

Signature Dish

Praline Bacon
A Delectable morning specialty. You'll rave about the Ivy Manor Inn's breakfast special. Thick bacon perfectly covered with rich dark brown sugar then sprinkled with freshly crushed pecans then baked to a desired crispness! Oh, of course, creme brulee blueberry french toast!
